Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • This is the first time we see a reference to Grace wanting to have a kid with Will, which is a major storyline in season 4.

    • Foreshadowing: Jack makes reference to donating sperm, which eventually leads to his discovery of Elliot at the end of Season 3.

    • The Nurse is continuously credited as "Sheila" throughout the rest of the series, yet in this episode when she shows Will his "room" her nametag clearly says "Sue"

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jack: Last night, when Mitch and I were celebrating our half-week-aversary, um... Stan caught us doing a little somethin'-somethin' on his Viking oven.
      Will: Ooh, sort of... homo on the range.

    • Jack: Karen, take me to your dentist. I feel my teeth are dull and people are laughing at me.
      Grace: Oh, Jack, that's not why people are laughing.

    • Claire: I'm guessing you're a high-maintenance kind of friend.
      Jack: I cost a little more, but I'm worth it.

    • Grace: What is with friends showing up 15 years later asking for sperm? I don't know about you, but I never wrote in anyone's yearbook, "Don't ever change and please fill this cup."

    • (Looking at the magazines)

      Will Booties, Jugs and Cans. Oh my.

    • Karen: Ok. First of all the shoes go back on the Mayflower.

    • Karen: (tugging on Grace's right pig tail) By the look of this hair, I think this little piggie should stay home.

    • Grace: Karen, what are you doing here? You calling in sick this morning.
      Karen: ... (Half-Assed Cough)

    • Will: (To Grace) You selfish lunatic, get out of my spermatorium.

    • Karen: Honey, what's with this place? You're a lawyer. Why are you living in the projects?
      Will: I like to be close to my homeys and Zabar's. They make a smoked sable that is da bomb.
      Karen: By your inflection, I can tell that you think what you're saying is funny, but ... no. (To Jack) Come on, poodle, let's go.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Will: (looking at magazines at the sperm donation center) Booties and Jugs and Cans. Oh my.

      This is a twisted take on the line, "Lions and tigers and bears...oh my!" from The Wizard Of Oz.

    • Will: Decorator, unpack thyself!

      This is a play on words from the biblical phrase "Physician, heal thyself" from the Gospel according to Luke.

    • Jack: You can't just start sleeping with women. Who are you, Anne Heche?
      It's rumored that Anne Heche, who'd never been with a woman before she started dating Ellen DeGeneres, did so for the publicity.

    • Will: Claire, this is Charlie Brown's French teacher.
      The teacher's voice on The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show was nothing more than the sound of a trumpet with a plunger head on the horn.

    • Will: Yeah. What's that about, Pippi?
      Quick reference to the cartoon series and later movie Pippi Longstocking.
